Fingers crossed / 3rd time lucky and all of that
THIS WORKED!!!

The trick I missed in previous attempts was to change the card I want to pay from Turkey with before I cancel my Irish sub.

Steps for anyone who is still stuck
  1. Assumes you are paying in Ireland with an Irish credit card
  2. When still an active member, change your payment method from your Irish card to a Curve card (mine is linked to my Revolut Card)
  3. Cancel your sub
  4. Wait until the day after it expires & "Go to Turkey" (I used VPNUnlimited)
  5. Restart your membership

Just paid €4.54 for the top package of 4 screens

I've added an Irish phone number and cancelled my renewal. My current payment method is revolut. Will i be able to renew with a Turkish VPN or is it not going to work without using Curve?

I'm not really willing to go to the effort of setting up another banking thing tbh

People please do not use Revoult as your payment method, at least not directly, it doesn't work for the majority of people, if you really need to use Revoult then attach it to your Curve card and use it that way.

So it won't work then? I don't have a curve card. Which means I have to go find out what it is and sign up for it

You might be one of the very few lucky ones, but even then it might catch up with you further down the road. I just use my Irish debit card and that works fine, well at least till the card expires lol

Well I've now signed up to Curve and it won't let me add my revolut card. So I'm just going to try revolut and now I have a curve card I don't want

Well the Curve card didn't cost you anything but it should work, a couple of guys here are using it that way, why not just use your normal debit card? Or add that to Curve?

Ok that's working now. The curve app is incredibly buggy, I had to uninstall and reinstall the app to get it out of the 'add a card' loop it was stuck in.

So I've added curve as a payment method to Netflix. Should I cancel Netflix now and then renew 24hrs after renewal? Renewal is at midnight.

Add your regular credit or debit card to Curve. You don't need to have Revolut linked to it. Curve will do the FX conversion anyway and give the same rate you would have got with Revolut.
